2015 Clos Cibonne Tibouren "Cuvée Speciale des Vignettes" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1297752 92 points Vinous

 Limpid orange. Vibrant, mineral-tinged red berry and pit fruit aromas, along with suggestions of jasmine, orange pith and succulent herbs. Smooth and energetic in the mouth, offering concentrated raspberry and peach flavors and a hint of bitter blood orange. Powerful yet graceful in style, showing outstanding energy and thrust on a very long, sappy finish that leaves behind juicy red berry and citrus fruit notes. Drink 2018 - 2023. (JR)  (6/2017)

K&L Notes

Clos Cibonne's special rosé bottling is 100% Tibouren sourced from 60+ year old vines instead of 30 years for the regular bottling. It is aged on the lees for 1 year before bottling, so it hits the market the year after the rosé wines from other estates. From the importer: "Intense color. On the nose it is spicy with hints of quince and roasted nuts. The palate is bold and fresh with a long finish."

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
